Sunday Reflection (April 18, 2021)

Each person is given dignity because he/she is created in God’s image, and through the Holy Spirit we grow in divine likeness unto the Image of Christ, and “what we will be” not “who” will be revealed (1 John 2:28-3:3). Yet, what prevents this from developing in our lives as individuals and as Christ’s Church? I found these words illuminating this: “What seems to be evil in us is purified by the mere fact of having noticed it…At the moment we notice our sin, we have not only drawn closer to our goal, but we have also drawn further away from it (René Girard).” What thwarts the image of Christ being more fully formed within us and among us?
